I live in & love Los Angeles. The main reason why I am writing about Hollywood is so that tourists understand that Hollywood is only a very small part of L.A. and except for Paramount Pictures there are no major movie studios in Hollywood. It is worth a short drive on Hollywood Blvd. by Highland Avenue as you head to... More

Must things you should do: Walk the entire... More

You can't get too close to this sign which is actually 5 stories high! You can get glimps of it as you walk along the Hollywood walk of fame but the best way to get closer is to take a tour. There are lots on offer on the street and you get to see Beverley Hills, Rodeo Drive etc.

Accept that it's a pretty shoddy place, and you can have a good time. You can walk along the pavement and see the stars beneath your feet. You can go to the Arclight for a movie & a meal. You can ignore the city and the crowds and drive/hike up to the wonderful Hollywood sign. Best of all, if you're... More

I have seen this place on movies, in TV shows, on commercials and pictures. The world famous glitz and glamour of Hollywood! Well...sadly to say... this is not what it has been made out to be! We had allotted an entire day for Hollywood because we had always dreamed that it would be fantastic, but how wrong were we?! This... More

We visited Hollywood during our Napa to LA trip. It was our last stop and although a must to see definitely not my favorite. I was much more enamored by the coast and the beautiful sights we saw during our trip.

Staying in Hollywood

Neighbourhood Profile
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
